What if?

“His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’

Matthew 25:21

What if?

*********

What if my talents resemble

a child’s sandcastle on the shore

while others are built of stone

on mountaintops grandeur?

~

What if the crops I’ve planted

only yield some lowly grain

while others have mined diamonds

and other costly things?

~

What if the life I live

only leaves an etch in stone

while others have hewn marble monuments

when they’re warmly welcomed home?

~

What if I joyfully accept

the humble lot God’s given me

investing it with all I’m worth

for interest eternally?

The comparison  game really isn’t appropriate for Christians to engage in. Our mandate is to trust and obey God; we are also called to make disciples. A spinster I know works faithfully at her day job quietly and reliably. She also serves faithfully in children’s ministries year after year in her church. I would not describe her as a glamorous woman; however, I believe she is potentially the most beautiful woman, from her fellowship, in the eyes of God. I admire her!

May we invest the talent we’ve been given.

  1. What if we had not found your blogs…or what if you had not started the blogs…thank you for your ‘investment’.

  2. May we invest what we’ve been given, indeed! Thank you for this reminder! No comparisons; just live fully for God’s glory! Blessings–Alison

  3. Such encouraging words. It’s not what we do or what we’ve done, but Who we did it for that counts. The pennies given in faith invoke greater joy in heaven than millions given without the cross.
    Peace

  4. “our final sunset….” SInce I’m in my 8th decade, these words perhaps mean more to me than someone not so far along the path of life. I remember reading the following words somewhere fairly recently: “Live each day as if it were your last, because one day, you will be right….”
